Thanks to @Trance for taking me under his wing yesterday and giving me 1-2-1 tips. I actually got a couple of kills AND I could see them!

What is incredible about this came is that the slogan really is true "Communicate, collaborate and conquer" The three famous C's. Our side of 40 players was a bunch of Taliban "Ahmed No mates" and we were playing against 3 clans (DK, BOB, SIN). They were far better shooters with thousands of more hours experience. Yet through careful planning, some loud yelling from me (Commander Knight) to the 7 squads we somehow beat this team of much better players and won with 145 tickets. Why? well that was because we communicated more, we collaborated and we conquered. You see just because you are good shooter doesn't mean you communicate and collaborate well, quite often on the contrary people that aim for high kills don't play for the team. It's rare in a computer games people that are less good at the actual game win over better players - that's what makes Squad unique.

Its still only 30% of amour 3, but it is is bigger than sandstorm insurgency which surprises me

in the zone....focus and concentration went above my average day of gaming....I slept well the night before, had a nutritious breakfast and lunch, felt good in the afternoon - had a suckie warm up seeding game and thought to myself concentrate ffs - focus sensei. Yesterday I had a game where everything was just so fluid, it was as if it was happening in slow motion....I walked into Homestead (Yehorivka map) village pissed off about my earlier warm game - and that the Russian bastards had wiped out my team there earlier (incredible firefight where Miller, Jesus and heligman held off an entire squad for 5 mins) - it was controlled aggression. I was fired up and ready to kill. I ran in with my M4 rifle and 5 clips of ammo.....it was as if Chuck Norris and Charles Bronson had mixed DNA and this was their chosen child. This was Neo from the Matrix I could see bullets coming at me in slow motion and I just knew and predicted where Ivan "Russian infantry" men were. I butchered the poor souls. After running through the village I had killed 15 Russian soldiers and I was still alive barely....they sent a fu**ing tank to kill me. I was John Rambo for 10 mins of gaming.....this was the result of 2.5k of gaming in the same game (I can hear you all scream "get a life") and you might be right, but come on when can a middle aged 45 year old man way past his prime still feel this high with adrenaline. It was frikin' awesome, a rush.....funnily enough one of the players who came behind me was NG Rambo and he was like holy shit "knightmorphed" you killed everyone in this damn village and turned around and said "I Want Them To Know That Death Is Coming, And There Is Nothing They Can Do To Stop It"......

NG team playing on the enemy team had the following conversation on Discord
"You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Knightmorphed was the best."

I'm highly amused, very pleased, and jolly proud to hear that story. I think it's worthy of being added to your blog!
